Quick Stop at Blogapalooza

The recently held Blogapalooza could possibly be the largest gathering of businesses and bloggers under one roof this side of the planet and it definitely did not disappoint!

Running about in Metro Manila’s Roads: Cramming for RU2

Time flies when you’re having fun, and also when you’re quite busy.  Being a one man team at work made me forgot all about the rest of the world and before I noticed it, it was just a week before it’s time for my first 32K of the year, Run United 2 (due this Sunday!).

My First Half Marathon of the Year at Run United 1 (2013)

Time flies so fast and before we know it, it’s already the middle of March!  New Year seemed like yesterday and with all the crazy work that I have in the office I didn’t notice the first leg of the Run United 2013 series coming.  Of course I wouldn’t just let RU1 slip just because…

Ped Xing

Metro Manila residents may not notice it but traffic lights in progressive cities are now being replaced by more energy efficient LEDs.  Aside from having more even and brighter lighting than the old incandescent traffic lights, these new LED traffic lights have new tricks up their sleeves: most have timers on how long before the…

Eye on MoA and Its Arena

It’s been a while since my last post on SM Mall of Asia so when I got a chance to revisit one of the largest malls in the world, I thought of sharing some of the new installations in the compound: the SM Mall of Asia Arena and the MoA Eye.

Yabu, The House of Katsu

The date 11/11/11 (November 11, 2011) is a tad more especial for me, more than it’s visual appeal, as it marked this blog’s third anniversary.  It is also the last Friday before my first 32K at Run United 3 so it’s the best time to carbo-load—and for this special day I picked the latest addition…

Quickie Tour: SM Mall of Asia and its Arena

It’s been quite a while since I was last at the SM Mall of Asia, and like with other business centers in the country the development in the area is going full throttle.  Among the most prominent structures under construction is the SM Mall of Asia Arena.  Here are some pictures from my quick tour…

Double Millionaire

If meters were currency I would’ve been double a millionaire as I’ve earned my two millionth meter last night, or 2,000 kilometers, since I started running almost two years ago. So many obstacles hampered this long sought after but very much delayed milestone of mine, mostly for reasons of injuries, but as I gradually recover,…

Dare to be Fit ‘N Right Fun Run: Weighing In

After several consecutive races, I can finally have a race I can call my own—no more running others’ pace, no more target time—freedom to run as desired, and Fit ‘N Right was the right venue for me.  It was a particularly interesting event especially that this was my first race at the SM Mall of…

The Yins and Yangs of adidas KOTR

When adidas decided to release the race kit during its running expo it was a “make or break” situation—it was the first time that a race event held a running expo (similar to races abroad) giving a chance to the company to “make” a good impression, but at the same time being a first there…

Back on the Road: Traversing Metro Manila

It has been a long time since I was running on the road and since I had no race or group runs for the weekend I decided to do one of the routes I’ve long wanted to do: traverse Metro Manila from East to West.  Like my first road run along EDSA which followed MRT-3…
